You are going to be picked up from your hotel and we will drive 1 hour and a half through the heart of the Iguazu National Park along the 101 National Road, up to the Urugua-í Provintial Park.
Once there, you will walk a very nice trail expecting to see the the black-fronted pipinguan (Yacutinga), an endemic bird that only exists in this ecoregion and nowhere else in the world. At the end of the trail and when the sun goes down (chances are better in this moment!) we will be waiting on a hide, to see in it’s intimacy, the biggest mammal of south America, the Tapir.
Outings: We suggest to depart from Iguazu at 3 pm and we will be arriving back at Iguazu at 8.30/9 pm.
